Richardson, L.A., 1944. Report on magnetic investigations in the vicinity of Fremantle, in connection with naval degaussing operations. Record  1944/039. Department of Supply and Shipping: Mineral Resources Survey, Canberra.

Abstract

These investigations were carried out at the request of the Secretary for the Navy. The following report is intended to confirm provisional information made available to naval personnel during and at the conclusion of the surveys. The Fremantle Degaussing Range is situated in Gage Roads near Fremantle Harbour. The position of the coils forming shallow and deep ranges is shown in Fig. 1. Deperming operations were carried out in Careening Cove, Garden Island. The objects of the investigation were twofold. First, to determine the average normal values of the vertical (Z) and horizontal (H) force components of the Earth's magnetic field in that part of the harbour which would be occupied by a ship in passing over the coils, and second, to determine the average normal values of Z and H in the vicinity of Careening Cove, Garden Island.
